Koi II Multicolour - Fringed Silk Twill Scarf
A colourful scarf in Italian silk twill, featuring nine different Koi varieties.
This scarf combines a classic easy-to-wear format with a playful ‘eyelash’ fringe. The deep colours of the print go through the beautiful twill fabric and are almost identical on both sides of the scarf. The many colours make it easy to combine, and the fringed edges add an informal elegance.
The print is based on a monochrome indian ink drawing of fancy japanese Koi carp. The colours I added for the scarf design are the actual colours of the koi breeds. They are Sanke, Kigoi, Asagi, Tancho, Kumonryu, Matsuba, Utsuri, Goromo and Soragoi.
When you wear it, you can choose which colours you want to feature more prominently, as every corner has a different colour combination. The colour palette is vibrant but the colours still have a softness to them, as not to overpower the face.
The scarf is printed in the UK onto 100% Italian silk twill, a classic scarf fabric with a subtle sheen. It has a satisfying weight and drapes beautifully, and the artwork shows exceptionally well on this fabric. Silk is a naturally sturdy material, and in this quality a scarf will last.
